Lovehoney's Male Sex Toys Feature in Metro Newspaper!
Sales of male sex toys are rising and one of the aims of Lovehoney is to get them accepted into the mainstream and make them less of a taboo.
Louise Prior and sexpert Julie Peasgood have written in today's Metro newspaper, a column about this very subject!
As the Male sex toys: Man's new best friend? article explains:
Julie Peasgood, author of The Greatest Sex Tips in the World, isn't surprised at their recent surge in popularity and says male sex toys have always been used - they just haven't been discussed.
"Women are generally much happier to talk about toys, thanks to programmes such as Sex and the City and magazines such as Cosmopolitan."
Julie suggests for those men that are new to sex toys, the Tenga Flip Hole, which has a ribbed and bumped internal sleeve that flips open (see where the name comes from?!) so you can fill it with lubricant then close snugly over your penis.
A 32-year-old advertising executive was asked to try the Tenga Flip Hole and he described the experience as '"creating a vacuum that can change sensation at the touch of a button". And although he gave it a thumbs-up, some men aren't ready to take the solo sex toy plunge!
Another toy recommended in the feature, which is designed for couples, is the Durex Play Ultra Vibrating Ring. This clever ring is perfect for men who want to introduce sex toys to their relationship - great stimulation for both him and her.
Another brilliant suggestion from the article is the Durex Play 2 in 1 Massage Melts, which you can pop in the freezer then, 2 hours later, use them for an icy cool, tingling massage! They are even condom-safe and double up as a great intimate lubricant, too!
Even the Nexus Vibro Luxury Male G-spot Massager and Vibrating Bullet Set got a mention in the piece for its ease of use and sophisticated style. The Metro asked four men what they thought about the toy and got some very interesting answers, including:
"Although it looks like an accident waiting to happen, I would give it a go. I wouldn't be upset if my girlfriend brought this home, I would just laugh!"
